Consultancy & Training
Welcome, my name is Mano Guillemot and I am French crêpe chef from Brittany. I have settled in the UK for the past 35 years and live in Devon with my wife and two cats.
I have over 20 years of experience trading as a crêpe chef in various settings all around London, the South-east and Devon and I’ve operated in markets, outdoor events, high-streets, restaurants and bakeries.
Creperie consultant in Lagos
My consultancy work started in 2006 when I was hired to set up the first ever crêperie in Lagos, Nigeria. In other words, the consultancy work has grown alongside over the years, teaching and training staff and I am proud to have been able to advise and train hundreds of chefs to cook authentic French crêpes and to run successful crêperies.
Still busy with the Salcombe Creperie
For about 15 years now I have been running The Salcombe Crêperie where I have become renowned for delivering exceptional French crêpes in Salcombe.
I am still working there hands-on with a team or sometime on my own. Feeling grateful I am still doing what I love after all these years!
I was honoured to be invited to take up a position and cook my crêpes at The Traveling Feast alongside Paul Ainsworth and other top UK chefs.
I have many years of practice in Qigong which influences and informs my work whether it is with movement within the kitchen or how I train.

Andrea G.TESTIMONIALInitially I thought the price was a bit steep for the consultation and then I thought about how many crepe recipes I had tried out, how much time I spent on the internet looking for alternatives and how frustrated I was getting with the process and decided I couldn't afford to not have the consultation with Mano.My conclusion is that it was worth every penny.We really enjoyed the training, Mano was very patient and considerate.He helped us with recipes and techniques and shared his wealth of experience with us, making really useful suggestions regarding our menu and how to make it more appealing to the customer and easier to manage for my staff.It was a great deal of fun and I am delighted to have booked the consultating with Mano.Thank you
